Cork alone doesn’t make a good desk mat, but combining merino wool felt with cork works great. With a wool and cork desk mat you get the soft feel of merino wool along with the anti slip benefits of cork.
Just like our classic wool desk mats, our wool and cork desk mats are also great for gaming. The merino wool felt we use is compatible with both optical and laser mouse styles so our desk mats can easily replace a conventional mouse pad. Because of its texture, wool felt will increase resistance slightly and feel like a high friction mouse pad.
To help our felt and cork desk mats cork to lay flat, try rolling in the opposite direction or light ironing from the wool side. Both can speed up the process even more!
Our desk mats are not machine washable. Natural wool felt and cork will both begin to break apart with high heat and water.
